RE: Technical Specifications - Action Letter # 2 GEN-97-11

The Department of Education has received questions on the HARDWARE AND
SOFTWARE specifications defined in Table B - Technical Specifications. In order to
provide timely responses to all questions, we established two special ways for schools
to request technical assistance on these issues. Destination Points may call (319)
339-6930 or send an email via the Internet to Action2@NCS.COM.

One of the more frequently asked questions has been:

Do I need a SCSI drive on all the PCs that use the Government
supplied products?

The answer:

The SCSI drive should be resident on the PC that contains the
database for the Government supplied software product, such as EDExpress. If you are
in a LAN environment this would be your server. If you are in a standalone PC
environment this would be your workstation.

The Department will continue to post answers to frequently asked questions regarding
Table B as they are received from Destination Points.
